E-learning Resources

Over the past few years, HEC Global Learning Centre has been working with Tower Hamlets e-learning Team to produce booklets to cover different aspects of e-learning and how they can be delivered within a framework of the global dimension.

These pamphlets cover the use of ICT in: enterprise, datalogging, sustainability, objects and designsimulations and game design.

ICT is an integral part of active global citizenship through:

  • redefining individuals in relation to communities and developing their views of themselves
  • communication, protest and political action;
  • sharing of information and working collaboratively;
  • the use of ICT to measure and solve problems, locally and globally;
  • linking the young citizen to those in local, national and international power;
  • the need to critically evaluate information,
  • the relationship between knowledge and opinion: accessing information from sources of local, national and international organisations and governments;
  • the use of ICT to present, in different media, persuasive and creative visions and arguments for changing the world.
